The paper presents a concrete study of the existence of generalized and potential symmetries for the 1+1 dimensional version of the Rudenko-Robsman equation, an interesting fourth-order partial differential equation that describes the evolution of nonlinear waves in a dispersive medium. As the main results, the existence of a two-parameter algebra of generalized symmetries and of an infinite-dimensional algebra when potential symmetries are taken into account is proven.
